    Salt 'N' Pepper in my ZT 0562ti

    I have had aftermarket bearings from other makers and they are not as good as Gillian bearings. High quality, well made and super smooth action on all of the knives I have Gillian bearings in. Do recommend 100%

    Salt and pepper KVT bearing replacement

    Posted by Ryan on Jul 14th 2021

    Ordered my replacement bearings for my ZT 0562CF. Took a week to get to me. Immediately installed them. They're great bearings. Very well made. Seems the blade deployment is a little slower, but action is very smooth. I flipped my knife a 100 times to break in the bearings. I didn't notice a huge difference. The bearings seem to have corrected the blade centering a bit somehow. Will swap back in old ones to confirm whether I'm crazy or not. All-in-all, very happy with the bearings and plan to try out their other bearings for a couple of my other knives. Thanks, Chris! Great job on your product.

    Great upgrade over the stock polymer caged bearings. Great action and real smooth when they break in.
